I am looking for details on John Lowry who married Catherine Bones in Kilmovee Co Mayo in 1831 He is the father of Michael Lowry born Kilmovee 1831. I am also looking for Mary Lowry who married Michael lowry in Selby in 1852 her fathers name was Luke Lowry. It is possible that she married her cousin Michael

The nearest marriage I can see for a Mary Lowry in Dec 1852 is in Sculcoates to either Walter Burke or Thomas Allison.
There is a Selby marriage with Mary Lowry and Michael McManamma on the same page but not until Dec 1894.

In 1881 they also have older children Catherine born about 1860 and Patrick born about 1862.
Sorry I still cannot see their marriage. :(

and in 1871 there were two more older children
John born about 1854 and Ellen born about 1857
I get there in the end :)

Michael Lowry born Kilmovee Co Mayo I think abt 1831 as his Father John Lowry married Catherine Bones in Kilmovee Roman Catholic Church 14th February 1831 Witness Pat Bones & Catherine [Towey] or Catherine Lowry
I have a copy of Michael and Mary's Marriage Certificate Catholic Chapel Selby 12th December 1852
They have written Lowrey for both of them. Michael's age 23 born 1829.
Mary's age 21 born 1831
Michael's Father John Mary's Father Luke.
My interest is LUKE LOWRY born 02/12/1867 Selby married Margaret Langham 25/08/1894 Selby Died 20/12/1920 Bridlington son of Michael & Mary Lowry.
It is my understanding that in Ireland during that time no one celebrated Birthdays so it is no surprise that people never knew when they were born
Census 1861 age 33 born 1828
Census 1871 age 40 born 1831
Census 1881 age 50 born 1831
Census 1891 age 62 born 1829
Census 1901 age 73 born 1828
On the Census 1901 Name shown as Michl Lowery Father in Law to Head
Michl McManamon Wife name Mary McManamon age abt 30.
Mary Lowry born abt 1870 daughter of Michael.
Michael Lowry Born Mayo Ireland Widower. Therefore Mary Lowry his wife had died before April 1901
The main reason why I believe that Michael was he son of John Lowry from Kilmovee is:-
A record of Michael Lowry Carrowbeg Kilmovee Mayo on Griffths Valuation
taken in Ireland between 1848 and 1864.
The other fact is that the records show only one household named Lowry
registered in Kilmovee in 1856-57
